JUNE AND THE EXIT WOUNDS

''..."a little more Haven Hamilton, please" defies easy categorization. It’s not quite baroque-pop (not really sure what that is, but I know it when I hear it), or orch-pop (no major string sections here), and definitely not power pop (Todd left his crunchy guitar at home). It is upbeat and arrangement-intensive sophisticated pop for fans of upper-echelon songwriting. Ok, there’s some Beach Boys influence here. And in the in-some-parallel-universe-this-would-be-a-hit-department, "Let’s Shack Up Together" comes as close to successfully marrying Brian Wilson-like vocal arrangements to naïve pop sentiment as has been attempted since, oh, "Good Vibrations."

A LITTLE MORE HAVEN HAMILTON PLEASE
